Sourdough Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Annie Murray, MS, RD
This sourdough grilled chicken sandwich was inspired by a trip to the farmer's market. When you have a good loaf of bread, this is the first thing I create. It has a great balance of nutrition, flavor and texture. This recipe can be made vegetarian as well. Customize it how you like, and enjoy!
